McCabe explains that Trump believed Putin over US intel about NK missiles: "Intel officials [told Trump his position] was not consistent with any of the intel our govt possesses. To which POTUS replied, 'I don't care. I believe Putin.'"

They need to bring this man back. I get it 18 million dollars a year was too much but bring him back.

I think he’ll make something in the neighborhood of $70k per hitter.

Not bad for a night’s work.

With Rendon going to the Angels, I wonder if the Bryant trade talks ramp up or do the Nats look into the possibility of Arenado ? I saw something about Colorado considering trades, but I wonder how much of Arenado’s success at the plate is a product of playing in Colorado. On the other hand what would it take to get Bryant?

Personally, I'd rather go with Carter Kieboom at third.

Hilarious in hindsight. Cole is 2 years younger so the Yankees just tacked on 2 more years from the Stras deal, and gave him 1 more mill a year in order to say he has the highest AAV for a pitcher (36 compared to Stras' 35).

Stras basically got the max he could get.

I won't say that I'm mad. It's clear that Rizzo/Lerners plan is to max money out on pitching and just pray that they can get lucky with hitting via the farm system. They've gotten amazing results there, but this was a move that got made on the basis that they won the WS. That takes the pressure off and allows them to play it more conservatively.

Yes that’s what I felt too but everything I’ve read recently seemed to imply Kieboom was not ready yet, at the plate or in the field.

I’m not feeling good about Donaldson as an option, too old and he may end up getting a 4 year deal.

I'm a Braves fan, and I'm guessing Donaldson goes to either Texas or the Dodgers. I agree with you - he's likely getting 100 mil total for 4 years, and that's too big a risk for an older player who finally had a healthy season coming up on a free agent season. Otoh, a healthy Donaldson is still a heckuva player. I wonder if Bryant from the Cubs is an option via trade - for either Washington or Atlanta.
